So we've had a lot of experience of all the challenges that come with being a single parent, being a blended family, being a parent to an un-pigeonholeable autism spectrum/very sensitive, gifted and talented child, parenting through pregnancy, parenting with large age gaps and with small age gaps, you name it, we've been there pretty much...

I am self employed with my own business, as a Reiki Practitioner and as a Pregnancy/Birth, Postnatal, Early Years and Life Doula. I also work voluntarily as a breastfeeding peer supporter and a spiritual carer at a local hospice which provides palliative care to the terminally ill.

I will be doing a bit of housekeeping and tidying up on the sticky threads in this forum in due course but if you have a problem that you think i might be able to help with...infant feeding niggles, concerns about pregnancy etc then please do feel free to PM me and I will do my best to help you out

I have breastfed all my children, Charlie for 3 weeks, Henry for 8 months and Cushla for over 2 years. I've also done formula bottle feeding, combined breast and bottle feeding and exclusive breastfeeding to term. I have weaned using the old fashioned baby rice and puree's, i've done full on baby led weaning and a mixture of the two

Thanks to members of UK Hippy, I totally had my head opened up to the idea of baby wearing and did quite a bit with Henry, and exclusively with Cushla until she was about 6 months. I also know a fair bit about using a simple peice of cloth to help you with pregnancy and to use during birth so will be sharing bits n bobs of information and wisdom about ALL things to do with Parenting and Pregnancy and hope we can get some good discussions going
